CommCare flagged as harmful by AVG

HI Everyone,

I have been using Commcare for a project for about 8 months now and
yesterday two of my mobile users received a strange notification from their
AVG free antivirus software that Commcare is a potential threat and should
be uninstalled. Has anyone had a similar experience or know why this would
happen? could it be because of the access that commcare requires?

Kind regards,
Ameera

Ameera,

I’m sorry to hear that! It could be any number of things (mobile antivirus
software is notorious for this kind of thing).

I’ll follow up with AVG and try to get off of their list.

Thanks so much for the report!

Thank Clayton,

I ad another two report the same issue today. It has never given me that
before so it could be that avg has changed their signatures.

Kind regards,
